3 trips from Cusco

Cusco is a city located in the Peruvian Andes, it was once the capital of the Inca Empire and has archeological remains of Inca stonework. It's the perfect place to use as a base to visit some amazing places.


Salineras de Maras

Salineras de Maras is located in the Secret Valley of the Incas and it consist of over 3000 salt ponds. These salt ponds are a perfect half day trip away from Cusco. We were five people sharing a taxi to the Salineras de Maras and we paid total 25$, so 5$ each for the taxi. You can also catch a bus there which is cheap but takes longer time.

Rainbow Mountains

You have probably seen pictures of the Rainbow Mountains on instagram, this beautiful green and red mountain. It's a perfect day trip from Cusco and I would highly recommend it even though it's getting quite touristy and crowded.


Price: 20$
